Ground beef recalled due to possible hard plastic contamination

WASHINGTON (WPTA21) — More than 43,000 pounds of ground beef is being recalled because it can be contaminated with pieces of hard plastic.

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said the recall involves ground beef produced on March 20.

The ground beef was sold at several retail locations in Michigan and Wisconsin including Meijer.

The FSIS said the recall was initiated after the producer, JBS Plainwell, Inc. of Plainwell, Michigan, received two complaints of green hard plastic in the product.

The FSIS said they are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are being urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The following products are subject to recall:
